In addition to Celtic paganism, goddess worship, and Druidry, Glastonbury features large Tibetan Buddhist prayer wheels. Tibetan prayer wheels (called Mani wheels by the Tibetans) supposedly are devices for spreading spiritual blessings and well being. Rolls of thin paper, imprinted with many, many copies of the Buddhist mantra (prayer) in an ancient Indian script or in Tibetan script, are wound around an axle in a protective container, and spun around and around. Typically, larger decorative versions of the syllables of the mantra are also carved on the outside cover of the wheel. Tibetan Buddhists believe that saying this mantra, out loud or silently to oneself, invokes the powerful benevolent attention and blessings of Chenrezig, the embodiment of compassion.
Viewing a written copy of the mantra is said to have the same effect — and the mantra is carved into stones left in piles near paths where travelers will see them. Spinning the written form of the mantra around in a Mani wheel is also supposed to have the same effect; the more copies of the mantra, the more the benefit.
We love you, O Lord, our strength. You are our rock and fortress and Deliverer. O God, You are our strength in whom we trust, our shield, the horn of our salvation, our stronghold. We call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised, and ask that Glastonbury be saved from our enemies (Psalm 18:1-3).
Lord, we claim Your promises. Your Word says:
-that You will fight for us (Deut 3:22)
-it will not be by might nor power but by Your Spirit (Zech 4:6).
-because of our weakness You will become strong in us (Heb 11:34).
-that even the gates of Hades shall not prevail against us as part of Your church, including the church in England (Matt 16:18).
-that through You we shall do valiantly, because it is You who treads down our enemies (Psalm 108: 13).
Lord God Almighty, we ask You to send angels to do battle for Glastonbury on earth and in the heavenlies against every source of wickedness (Heb 1:14, Psalm 103:20).
We ask you Father to cover and surround the Christians in Glastonbury and the intercessors for Glastonbury with the precious blood of the Lord Jesus Christ (Rev 12:11). We ask that the precious blood of the Lord Jesus Christ will also cover their bodies, souls and spirits as well as their minds, wills, emotions and hearts (Heb 9:14). The Christians in Glastonbury and intercessors for Glastonbury are complete in Him, redeemed, cleansed and sanctified by the precious blood of the Lord Jesus Christ (3 John 1:7). Therefore the devil has no place in them and no power over them (Rom 16:20). We ask You, Heavenly Father, to place Your hedge of protection around about them and their loved ones (Job 1:10). Please hide them under the shadow of Your wings and surround them as with a shield and hold them in Your righteous right hand (Psalm 91:4, Psalm 5:12, Psalm 108:6).
As Anglican Christians, we sever the source of the curses on Glastonbury, whether they are from witchcraft, wizardry, voodoo, sorcery, New Age, satanism, psychics, channelers, Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist prayers, ancestral, aboriginal and freemasonry rituals, prayers from every other religious group or false Christian prayers. Specifically, in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, we negate all Buddhist mantras, spoken or written, and all idolatrous rock music prayers (Deut l8:9-13). At the name of Jesus, the prince of the power of the air over Glastonbury and Chenrezig must bow their knees.
We forgive all those who have come against Glastonbury in this way and cut off their ties and connections to Glastonbury. Demonic grace over Glastonbury is bound, in the name of Jesus Christ. In our authority as disciples of Jesus Christ and as Anglicans, we declare demonic protection and assignments null and void. We bind the powers of all those coming against Glastonbury, in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ (Matt 5:44, Matt 16:17-19, Luke 21:22). We bless the enemies of Glastonbury and the enemies of her intercessors. Amen.
